The scenic panoramic flight over Vancouver was stunning and the pilot was great. My only advice would be pay the extra to pick your seat. I got lucky and was by the window but there are some double seats where there will be a person between you and the window, and not being next to the window kind of defeats the object of a scenic flight...

What an amazing experience yesterday for my daughter and I— the pilot was nice and the view from above was amazing! I would have given 5 stars if I wasn’t made to feel bad when we checked in— the associate said my booking was for 11:30am and not at noon but the pilot was willing to wait for us. My booking was for noon; I had an email 2 days before asking if I wanted to change my booking to 11:30am in which I said I could do that but I never received an email back confirming it will be at 11:30am my online vouchers still showed noon. Didn’t make me feel very good upon arrival.

Really enjoyed the voyage/ride. Was great seeing Vancouver from up high. The pilot was wonderful. The journey took just over 20mins, expect it to be quite loud & smelling of diesel, especially towards the back but you get great views and surprisingly smooth take-off & landing. Would definitely recommend.
